Hawthorn, Wild Form (Crataegus monogyna) potted tree, Organic

$15.00

Family: Rose (Rosaceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 8

These are field-grown Wild Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) that have been dormant-dug and potted up to 9-inch-deep pots.  They may be transplanted to the landscape right away.  They average 1/2 inch thick trunks and 30 inches tall.  They have been pruned, so no additional pruning is necessary, at least not in the first year.  Crataegus monogyna is a small to mid-sized deciduous thorny bush to small tree can be kept trimmed to desired size and even does well as a hedgerow species. Tree prefers full sun to part shade and deep, moist to mesic soil of average fertility. No compost or fertilizer is needed or recommended.  Space trees 30 feet apart or if making into a hedgerow plant 5 feet apart.  A giving plant to bird and beast alike.  Traditional usage (TWM): maladies of the heart. Hawthorn is considered to be an adaptogen for the heart.  Tree has a beautiful fountaining habit, and the fruits are really good to eat fresh, dried, or in confections (but remove the seeds lest they remove a tooth).

      Hello Heather, I am sorry i don’t know the answer to that. We do have a nice planting but they are deeply rooted in and we may need to work with them next year not this year. Please hit “waitlist.” Richo

      Hello Stephanie, Some sources list this as an acceptable species all the way up to zone 11. I’ve tried to be conservative about recommending Crataegus monogyna in warmer winter areas because my experience is that they are healthier when they get a cold winter dormancy. If as the name “mountain valley” suggests you do have treed slopes then this might be a better habitat for a hawthorne tree than say a desert valley floor with alkaline soils. It might make sense to visit a local nursery and see which if any hawthornes are being provided for local planting–there may be more heat-tolerant species and cultivars out there. Richo

  4. Question

    Kira

    Are either of the hawthorn varieties you offer suitable for espalier? I’m hoping to train one at least semi-flat to a trellis with schisandra on either side. Not sure if the wood is at all flexible, or if they would take to that type of pruning. (Zone 6 NY)

      Richo Cech

      Hi Kira,
      Thanks for staying in touch. The wood of hawthorn is extremely flexible and the plant can be trained extensively. I think the downside could be that it tends to resprout with multiple stems from any cut so you’d end up pruning it frequently. However I do not think this is a stopper. I worked with hawthornes throughout the winter and early spring. I had a whole field of them. I had to prune them back hard in order to send them to people, as they were already shoulder-high in the field and it would have made the boxes too long to send them without pruning. But I planted a number of the heavily-pruned trees in 3-gallon containers in order to assess how they came out of the heavy pruning, and what I found was, that they were able to thrive, and many of them sent out a primary leader that is now, again, shoulder-high. You can choose any branch you like and tie it back to a trellis and get it to do pretty much anything you want. Richo

      Many people ask that. I think that it does not. Reason being, it is strongly deciduous and stays healthy by means of sleeping through the winter.

      No, we won’t have potted wild hawthorn again for some time. In the spring of 2020 we are going to be shipping large bareroot wild hawthorn (waist high or so, with thick trunks like your thumb) and they will be $30.00 apiece.

      Hi Richo! Can you please let me know if you’ll have Crataegus monogyna and C. oxyacantha (or C. laevigata) available for Fall shipment? I tried to order yesterday (May 15) but you’re already out of stock for Spring shipment. So, now I’ll hope to plant in the Fall. I live in northern Colorado, so I believe planting dormant plants at that time should work ok. Thanks a bunch! Lyn

      Hi Lyn,
      English Hawthorn Trees are not out of stock. Here’s the link https://strictlymedicinalseeds.com/product/hawthorn-english-crataegus-oxyacantha-syn-crataegus-laevigata-potted-tree/
      These are very nice and are recommended. Regarding wild hawthorn, I have a large production area of C. monogyna and am planning to dig trees spring of 2019, so Crataegus monogyna will be available at that time. I will probably be shipping bare-root, as the roots are too large to fit in a pot.

      Hi Lizzie-Pascale,
      It is a delight to hear from you. Sloe is Blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) which has naturalized in our Eastern states. Depending on where you are, you may be able to find it in the wild. We don’t have it. I seem to remember that gin is sometimes flavored with Juniper berries, which herbalists know to be a powerful urinary antiseptic. But that’s not Sloe.

      Hi Cheryl,
      They are self-fertile and pollinated freely by gnats and other small flying insects. It is quite impressive in-season to see what the flowers attract! Soon enough they become the globular clusters of fruits that we so highly esteem in heart health.

      Hello Wonshe,
      Trees are generally kept in the 5 inch deep pot and generally 12 to 18 inches tall. Our policy is to give the best plant first, so your best approach in attaining largest stock is to order early.

      I get this question a lot and I wish I had experience trying to grow medicinal hawthornes in zones 8 and 9. I mean, there’s really no harm in trying, but it is warmer than the plant is listed for, and the trees may suffer. Shade and plenty of water would be helpful.

      Hi Kristie,
      Yes, I would suggest the English Hawthorn (Crataegus laevigata/oxyacantha) potted tree. It is smaller right now and can be trimmed back as it grows. Don’t forget the value of the leaves and flowers for making tea–much easier to make tea with those than with the berries.
